What About Concealer?

Published September 8, 2011 by MyEye4Fashion

Physicians Formula Concealer Twins in Light Yellow

(CVS)

Alright, so here’s the thing, I’m not a big fan of this product. Yet again, I made the purchase at the drugstore in a hurry. The yellow is supposed to conceal under-eye darkness and the lighter color is supposed to be for other blemishes. The yellow does not blend out well with my finger or a concealer brush. It starts to get dry and tough to blend very quickly. The yellow also left the awkward white color,which was the result of the concealer drying up.

The tan color is better, but still its not my favorite. It blends a little bit better and surprisingly is doesn’t dry up as quickly; with that being said I still question this products ability to effectively conceal anything at all. I will still attempt to use the tan  color, so its not a complete waste of money. Below I will have a list of the top concealers I’ve heard about for under-eye darkness.

My Eye Shadow Base & Info

Published September 6, 2011 by MyEye4Fashion

L’oreal Paris De-crease Eye Shadow Base

(CVS)

The only eye shadow base I have is this one above. I didn’t have time to get the one I had wanted, because I was going out later on the same day I purchased this item. I went to my local CVS and picked it up. I think it’s the only base I saw, as a matter of fact. I would say it works pretty well for the brand/price. I never had a problem with it showing creasing, but then again I don’t usually wear make-up for over 5 hours really. Some people have issues with it, but for me it worked well enough but I still plan to get a better one. I usually dot some on my eye with the wand, then smooth it out with my finger.

A lot of people seem to recommend the MAC paint pots, NYX, Too Faced Shadow Insurance and a couple other great brands. Be aware that these options are more expensive, but most people rave about them because of superiority.

I hope this helped! Any questions? Just comment below and don’t forget to subscribe on the right.

Until next time 😀
